Paula Fernandez


Born in Santiago de Chile, I studied Medicine and Biology in Switzerland. I first focused on basic research working in cell signaling and gene regulation before changing to a clinical diagnostic laboratory. In this setting, I found the ideal environment to combine my skills, expertise and interests at the interface of medicine and biology. I joined the field of Flow Cytometry in 2008 and have been active ever since in co-organizing educational and scientific activities for the Swiss Cytometry Society, teaching clinical flow cytometry at national and international courses and workshops, and have teaching commitments at national schools and university.

Silvia Della Bella


I'm an Italian Medical Doctor with a passion for translational research, working as Associate Professor in Immunology at the University of Milan, Humanitas Clinical and Research Center.

Born and raised in Greece. Received my Bsc in Biology from the University of Massachusetts, Boston, USA in 1990 and my Ph.D in Immunology from the Aristotelian University in Thessaloniki, Greece in 2000.

Ulrika Johansson


Originally from the west coast of Sweden, I moved to Britain after my University degree (Immunology) and obtained my PhD from Imperial College, London. Academia was nice, however I found it interesting to work in a more direct health care setting, and so after graduation I moved to work as a Clinical Scientist with Prof Marion Macey at Bart’s and The London. In 2009 I took up the offer to set up a flow cytometry laboratory at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, where I still am working.
